  • Orgasm show doesn’t fit

    I fail to see how the female orgasm episode meshes with the overall theme of the podcast - the unfinished experiment that is America. There is no effort to link that episode to the overall narrative. It seems trashy in comparison.

    I just listened to this episode it was an incredible reminder of a terrible past and very well produced. All the episodes have taught or reminded me of interesting facts, but this episode compelled me to write a review. Thank you
